Healthcare Notification Policy
Our healthcare staff will make every effort to contact you by phone, if your child has need for out-of-camp healthcare. Because of timing and scheduling conflicts, we cannot promise that we will be successful in reaching you. In addition to phone contact, we will provide you with a written summary about out-of-camp health care given to your child. We generally do not contact you if your child is seen in the camp health center for routine problems (e.g. skinned knees, sore throat, and headache) that do not require a Healthcare Provider's referral. The decision to consult you for routine, in-camp healthcare is determined on a case by-case basis for our Healthcare Provider. You will typically be notified if your child visits the health center with a repeated complaint, or if your child’s condition does not improve in a reasonable amount of time.
